Changes made to the plan were mostly related to capital works, and incorporated Federal government funding for projects at sites including Waterworld, the Road & Cycle Safety Centre, Tilley Reserve (lighting) and Lyons Reserve (irrigation).

More information about rates and our plans for the next 12 months can be found on our website

CWMS

Decisions were also made at the 7 July Council meeting in relation to the Community Wastewater Management System (CWMS), including the deferment of the setting of the 2020-21 CWMS service charge until 28 July 2020. Those residents connected to the CWMS network will receive a separate notice representing the 2020-21 service charge during August 2020.

In light of the decision by the South Australian Government to upgrade the CWMS network to SA Water sewer standard, Council also resolved to defer a portion of the planned CWMS renewal works. The works have been deferred while Council works with SA Water on how the proposed upgrade will proceed. While a portion of the renewal works has been deferred, detailed design of those CWMS segments identified for renewal in the CWMS Asset Management Plan will proceed as planned.

Background

The draft Annual Business Plan and Budget sets out our proposed projects, services and programs for the financial year and how we intend to fund them.

As part of the planning process, we invite the community to provide feedback on the draft plan for 2020-2021.

As we move into the 2020-2021 financial year, we continue to face extraordinary circumstances as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Like many in the community, Council has not been immune to the impacts of the virus, having to make a number of changes to our daily operations and the services we offer.

We must find a balance between what residents and other tiers of government expect of us, with what is appropriate and affordable, given our financial position.

We are proposing a 0% rate increase, excluding any increases due to growth, offering residents some much needed rate relief.

To get involved and have your say:

Email and written submissions can also be provided - see the summary document for more details.

Note that due to COVID-19, we are unable to hold a public meeting this year.

Copies of the draft plan, summary document, and hard copy feedback form are also available at the Council's Civic Centre, 571 Montague Road, Modbury.

Following community consultation, Council will determine whether the direction and focus of this plan is appropriate and to what extent the proposed initiatives and standards of service will be funded.
